Northern Academy

York Croquet Club is delighted to have been chosen to host the new Northern Croquet Academy at the Club lawns.  The mission of the Academy is to provide a centre of excellence for croquet coaching and development in the North of England.

The Northern Academy works closely with croquet’s national governing body, the Croquet Association, and ensures that every course is led by an experienced CA-qualified coach.  The Academy also wants to do all it can to ensure that all participants not only benefit from Northern Academy courses, but also enjoy the experience.

The Academy launches in 2017 and builds on York’s successful track record of hosting national-level coaching.  Academy courses cover both Association Croquet and Golf Croquet.
